check the diaphragm for debris, damage, or deformity. unthread the collar above the handle and push the tube downward. Inspect the rubber diaphragm, any damage or deformity will cause erratic behavior.

SOURCE: Can Baracuda Diaphragm be replaced?

If you can't find any junk in the diaphram or throught. The best thing to do is take it to a store they can show you how to do this and they will not usually charge for more than just the part.

It sounds like your house weights need to be adjusted. When the pool cleaner is resting, it should always sit at a 45 degree angle on the bottom of the pool. If it stands up on the front side, try sliding the weight away from the cleaner head. You may need to make several small adjustments to get the balance right, but this is almost surely your problem. Here is a copy of the users manual if you want to read more about hose weights and balance:

Check your Star Control settings to make sure that you are getting adequate pressure. If you get a blue or black reading, you are not getting adequate flow and need to increase (aim for the yellow zone). You will also want to make sure that you don't have any obstructions that are preventing movement (in the mouth of the cleaner or hose). If these are not the cause, I would make sure that you have assembled the cleaner correctly. Here is a copy of the users manual for these pool cleaners.

Zodiac mx8 wheels are not turning


Hey Sergio,

If they wheels are not turning, the A or B side direction control has quit working. Normally they have drive 1 shaft in each run that wears down over time, losing friction on the shafts for the wheel to make the wheel rotate. If one side has gone out, I'd recommend replacing both and take a look at your wheels also. Normally these all wear out around the same time.

My baracuda G3 stop working is not pulsating and therefore not moving. I checked the suction and the hoses even the diaphram everything looks ok.


If you have suction at the bottom of the cleaner, there has to be a problem with the diaphragm. I would remove it and recheck.

This sounds like a bad diapraham, These can be gotten at your local pool store and if you bring the head with they can install it at the same time. They can ck the unit for you at this time but if you have good suction and flow this is probally your problem.
